    Yeah, it's not like they forgot that Secreta-i-whoosis horse after he won the TC then lost to a horse named Onion. Heck, AP's win percentage is STILL better than Secretariat's. Seattle Slew came...

    Do you own, work with, train or otherwise have normal contact with racehorses? It's not a church. It's not a show where people seem to expect if someone crinkles a candy wrapper the highly trainer...

    Zayat (the owner) wanted to try. Baffert (given his past experience at the Spa) was not a fan of the idea but the owner ultimately pays the bills. And second money is good money. The fans got a...

    Speaking as someone with shares in horses, yes we do. I wouldn't sneeze at the place money and it was a great race. He was tired enough he didn't see Keen Ice coming (horse deserved better than...

    He's not a dressage horse. Noise doesn't turn him into a wilting lily or a dragon.

    I go through phases where I can watch a particular movie (or show or miniseries) over and over and over. We will not go into how many times I've watched "The Tudors" in its entirety. Or "From the...

    I don't know about the trail rides--most are geared to the average fudgie, who can't really ride. With the rental (as opposed to the tour ride) carriages, the horses know their route really well.

    Compared to a jockey? No. A lot of the people who get hurt are freak accidents or people who aren't very fit (at least one person had to drop out because her bones couldn't take the stress.) ...

    It isn't if the guy's already good. A competent lead doesn't have to be taller (though for one particular discipline, International Standard, it's kind of awkward and the look is off if the man's...

    The company marketing the drug for humans spent exponentially more getting permission to do it than the companies marketing animal drugs. So their costs are a lot higher (also any drug that makes it...

    Very few female dancers (especially the eastern european girls) are very tall. But with Victor even the tiny girls may be too much! I have to think he'll be partnered with Whitney, who's 5'3", but...

    The Ruckus looks adorable. I wouldn't get one for horse shows (if I did go to them still, and that sort of thing's not allowed on racetracks) but if I still lived in Boston or DC I would be ALL OVER...

    Well, except the part where All Rise was vanned off. I hope he's all right.

    She's just too high-risk, and given her dam was apparently the same way it would probably be for the best if they think long and hard before breeding Valentina, either. Not a great female family in...

    We don't have ferals much yet, but the state DNR issued flyers clarifying it's legal to shoot them whenever and wherever they're seen. The last thing they want is a breeding population.

    Sounds like he's just high-energy. I wouldn't take him out on the track, I wouldn't canter him on trails, I'd keep him at the walk and trot until he is less fit (an unfit horse, even one full of...

    These are cheaper and probably more comfortable, especially if you don't need to worry about actual wear from the saddle? Seriously the pricing on most riding breeches makes my eyes bug out.
